Family Value Merchandise

I never met a Spring Training souvenir store I did not like.
But the Angels have a new twist on the stuff that fans want -- shirts, hats, etc. They have a line of merchandise, with one particular logo, that is the "Family Value Merchandise." So adult shirts are $10, far less than the $27.01 I paid today at the Cubs, and hats are $10. These prices include the tax, so the shirt is $10. A kids shirt was less than that.
What a great way to appeal to fans that don't have lots of cash but still want to support their team. I think that is a great give-back to the community. Did I mention that all the Angels products are bright red?
